    So i am going on vacation out of the country tomorrow, and don't want to tack on the international plan onto my contract for the week(its obscene how much they will charge)

    but i still want to keep in touch with my family back home. Is it possible for me to use my iphone 3GS as a stand alone web cam(i.e no computer involved)??

    I purchased icam, and thats the best thing i have come up with so far. But i want to be able to talk back, not just be able to hear and see.

    If anyone has a solution, please let me know because i'm leaving tomorrow early morning.

    thanks!

    Skype to skype is free but the other end of your family will have to have it installed on there device. Pc Mobile etc. Your other option is If your calling to USA or Canada Landlines install icall free, it asks you to activate a number but you can use there website software to do this. Pm me if you need anymore help

    Get iMovicha from cydia. It allows 2 way video, and you can talk and listen to people
